Encouraging individualism

“One of my favourite teachers was my Y10 English teacher. She encouraged us to express our creativity through writing and spoken word. She inspired me and had a huge impact on my choices during further education, in the end I chose to pursue an English degree. I will always appreciate the independence that my teacher provided us and the passion that she expressed for the subject.“


Real World

“My sixth form tutor was definitely my favourite teacher! Every morning we would check the top news stories from around the world and discuss our opinions. It was a safe environment where we were able to debate and express our opinions. Many other teachers tried to show us the world though rose tinted glasses, but this teacher believed in cold hard realism!”


Building relationships

“I would say that one of the most influential people I’ve ever come across was my music teacher. I really connected with her because she made the effort to get to know me on a personal level. I never felt patronised in this class and because of this I made sure to give her my respect.”


More than the textbook

“My religious education teacher, hands down wins this award! I left the classroom learning far more than what fell between the pages of a textbook. The lessons were always exciting, and there was never a dull moment in that classroom. He always made it different, whether we were debating or making a video, it kept the lessons interesting and made learning fun!”


Out the classroom

“I always loved the teachers who took learning out of the classroom and into the real world. School trips were definitely my favourite part of the academic calendar! It didn’t matter if the trip was to a museum down south, the local park or if we were jetting off to a foreign land. My favourite trip that I’ve been on so far was to Iceland, with my Geography class. Iceland is a country I never thought to visit but I absolutely fell in love with the beauty of the nature. I will definitely be visiting again!”
